Excerpt: This was my first Android phone. It started on the v1.5 and just recently got an over-the-air upgrade to v2.1. That's nice, but the upgrade to 2.1 came AFTER the 2.2 had already come out. Not much has changed except the look of the touch buttons, and the availability of certain apps in the Android market. For example, I can download Angry Birds now, but it doesn't work on the phone... This phone is not for the tech-savvy.
The Motorola Cliq needs the google goggle with a longer battery.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I purchased the phone right after the release in 2009. I like the phone for the social context just needs a longer battery life and a better selection of apps for the eariler model. Since having the phone there have been no updates. My next purchase will be the HTC.
Excerpt: I had this phone since it first came out. I preordered it. I loved it at first but now it's a pain. It freezes alot(sometimes I can't answer calls on the touch screen because the buttons don't come up) and I have to turn off the power frequently to get it to work I again.Other than that the phone works just fine.the sound is great and are the widgets. The camera takes great pictures however there isn't any flash.
Excerpt: Cliq is the first phone packed with the "MotoBlur" social neworking feature, at times it gets very irritatting with all the updates. Other than this feature it's a regular Android phone with Android 1.6, recently here was an upgrade to Android 2.1, since the update the phone is slower with less battery life. Cliq lacks a solid processor and so the applications tend to hang sometimes.
Excerpt: This phone was amazing at first. I love that all my social networking comes together in one place. It has a sleek sexy design and a good feel to it. But now it starting to fall apart after only 6 months of use! sometimes i cant get the slider to work to answer my calls and if you leave a program open too long my phone will shut off! like all the way off! grrr!
Excerpt: If you have clumsy fingers you will be opening everything you didn't want to and calling everyone you didn't mean to, because its quick. Also, if you talk a lot on the phone or use the web and GPS frequently in a day expect to be charging it at least twice a day or more, so get a car charger and charge it every night. Other than that its good, buttons are a nice size and easy to use, all smart phones use to much juice, so you run into this same problem with all of...
Excerpt: This phone does an adequate job for light web browsing, but it does freeze quite often. Teh touch screen is a bit rough to use on occasions as well. It like to dial ohone numbers on its own while in your pocket, and sometimes does not want to dial when I want it to.
Excerpt: Bought the Cliq for both me and my wife because we did not want to move to AT&T for the iPhone. Bought it with the expectation that 2.0 would be there in the near feature. We are almost a year in without any hope of this ever happening. Release timeframes have come and gone repeatedly. I will never own another Motorolla product after this experience.
Excerpt: I have had the motorola cliq since it first came out. Originally the phone was giving me a lot of problems and I kept calling trying to resolve the problems, but then other problems kept re occuring. I ended up droping the phone and getting another one. So far with out downloading as many apps as I had before, I havent experienced nearly anything close to as many problems I had with the first one.
Excerpt: When I first got this phone I loved it. I was excited to delve into the world of Android and Motorola Blur. I think both of those bits of software are great. The layout of the phone is real handy with the slideout keyboard and nice sized touchscreen. The screen is smaller than most, but I like it. The weight of the phone is nice - not too heavy, but feels solid in the hand.
